PhD Positions at Technical University of Munich in Germany, 2017

PhD Positions at Technical University of Munich in Germany, 2017

The Research Training Group (RTG) “Advanced Optimization in a Networked Economy“ funded by the German Science Foundation (DFG) and jointly hosted by the Schools of Management, Informatics, and Mathematics at Technical University of Munich offers several positions (TV-L 13, 75%) for PhD students.

Focus of the Research Training Group

The challenges of a networked economy are fundamental and necessitate new research at the intersection of management science, computer science, and mathematics. New computational techniques are needed to solve large-scale optimization problems and to handle large data sets; incentive structures have to be considered in situations with multiple decision makers; uncertainties and other dynamics in the parameters of resource allocation problems require new modeling tools and solution strategies. The research program focuses on important application-oriented projects that would benefit from an interdisciplinary approach, including shared mobility, resource pooling, retail coordination, sales and operations planning, IT management, and airport operations.
Students with a background in one of the three involved disciplines and a strong interest in at least one of the other two fields will be offered a comprehensive study, training and research program. Specifically designed interdisciplinary projects will help to develop the ability to model, analyse, solve, and implement solutions for challenging real-world problems.

Application Process

We expect a Master of Science (or, in exceptional cases, an excellent Bachelor degree) in Management, Economics, Industrial Engineering, Computer Science, Mathematics or a related field and experience with Operations Research methods. Further, excellent written and verbal communication skills in English are required. Selected candidates will receive a three-year position starting on September 1, 2017, according to the German public service salary scale. We specifically encourage applications from qualified female researchers. This applies also to disabled persons.

Applications in English (in one pdf document), submitted to adone@tum.de, should include:
• Cover letter, curriculum vitae, transcript of record,
• Writing sample (master thesis or seminar paper),
• Research proposal (about 2 pages) motivating your specific interest in Advanced Optimisation in the Networked Economy,
• Names and contact details of three references.

Application Deadline: All applications received by March 15, 2017, will receive full consideration.

XII. DAAD Postdoctoral Researchers International Mobility Experience (P.R.I.M.E.) Funding Programme, 2017

DAAD Postdoctoral Researchers International Mobility Experience (P.R.I.M.E.) Funding Programme, 2017

Applications are invited for DAAD P.R.I.M.E. funding programme i.e. Postdoctoral Researchers International Mobility Experience (P.R.I.M.E.).

Funding is available for outstanding postdoctoral researchers from all disciplines and nationalities.

DAAD support measures and the possibility of continuous coordination with the German host institution shall ensure an efficient reintegration following the research stay abroad.

The DAAD is the world’s largest funding organisation for the international exchange of students and researchers. A brief look back at history shows that the DAAD has a long tradition of uniting people and academia. Founded in Heidelberg in 1925 on the initiative of a single student, the DAAD has since become one of the most important funding organisations in the world for the international exchange of students and researchers.

Applications may be submitted before completion of the PhD. The PhD must, however, be completed before the start of the funding period. Applicants from outside the home country will often need to meet specific English language/other language requirements in order to be able to study there.

Course Level: Funding is available for postdoctoral researchers.

Study Subject(s): Funding is provided in all disciplines.

Scholarship Award: Funding is provided through an 18-month temporary job position at the selected German university. The position will be remunerated according to the appropriate rate for postdoctoral researchers at the respective university (usually according to the German pay scale “TV-L E13”). DAAD will provide the respective universities with a grant agreement to cover the costs for the regular salary and an additional expatriate allowance for the 12-month research stay abroad. 3 An additional lump sum travel allowance in accordance with DAAD rates for the selected candidate and accompanying spouse or partner (within the meaning of the German law on civil partnerships) and children will be paid directly by DAAD. Successful applicants will be invited to an information seminar before the start of the fellowship, together with current fellows, alumni and representatives from science and business. The seminar will presumably take place in Bonn on 19-21 November 2017. Applicants are asked to save the date but not to make any travel arrangements before receiving a letter of acceptance.

Scholarship can be taken in Germany and Abroad

Eligibility: To be eligible:

  • Applications may be made by persons of all nationalities.
  • Applications may be submitted before completion of the PhD. However, the PhD must be completed before the start of the funding period.
  • There are no restrictions as to the country of destination as long as the applicant has not stayed in the respective country for more than 12 months in total during the three years preceding the application deadline of 15 May 2017.
  • Appropriate host institutions in Germany and abroad must have been identified at the time of application. The contact with these institutions and the agreement on modalities are the responsibility of the applicant.
  • The host institution in Germany has to be a university.
  • The German host university must confirm in writing that the postdoc will be employed for the whole funding period, should the application be successful. The necessary means will be made available to the university through separate DAAD project funding. The university will appoint a mentor/scientific host, who will inform the P.R.I.M.E. scholar during his/her stay abroad about developments at the institution and answer his/her queries so as to ensure a successful reintegration at the end of the period abroad. It is expected that the German university indicates at the time of application the possibilities for longer-term research perspectives at the institution following DAAD funding.

On its website DAAD offers a list of P.R.I.M.E. contacts at German universities who can answer questions from potential applicants concerning their institution. Universities that did not specifically nominate a P.R.I.M.E. contact person are equally eligible as hosts.

  • The foreign host institution shall be selected according to the scientific preferences/needs of the applicant and the research project. It can be a university, a non-university research institute, or an industrial research entity. It must be willing to support the postdoc in the realization of her/his research project. The type of support (office space, access to instruments, laboratories, libraries etc.) has to be defined and a mentor/scientific host appointed at the foreign host institution, who may be contacted if necessary. DAAD cannot make funding available to the foreign host institution.
  • The starting date of the fellowship must be between 1 January 2018 and 1 May 2018. A postponement is only possible under exceptional circumstances (e.g. pregnancy, motherhood, parental leave) and has to be approved by DAAD.
  • The “Rules of good scientific practice” and the ethical guidelines of the programme must be accepted.
  • The reintegration phase is mandatory

Nationality: Researchers of all nationalities can apply for this DAAD funding programme.

Entrance Requirement: Applications may be submitted before completion of the PhD. The PhD must, however, be completed before the start of the funding period.

All documents for upload must be in pdf format. If not stated otherwise, all documents must be submitted in English as the selection process will be conducted by an international commission.

Scholarship Application Deadline: The application deadline is May 15, 2017.
